* there were some imperfections in the 17 year old (at the time of the transfers) mastertapes. Where the beginning of a song was cut, I have put in a quick fade in (usually between 1 and 2 seconds long). Where there were dropouts or gaps I have put in a quick fade out and fade in to make it less abrupt. All of what was on the original master tapes aside from these fades have been included.

A scan of the flyer from the show is included. Photos from the shows by Brian Quinn are included.

It was a thrill for me to meet Rick C. many years ago at a party thrown by mutual friends, who told me, "This is Rick, he's a taper, too". Those were in the days before internet, in the days of tape lists and snail mails and B&Ps, and I'd often go a full year between new contacts with a fellow live music collector.

Rick C. is the person who made the master recording of "The Jam At Mickey Hart's Barn", which I tranfered and circulated in the late 90s. He made a reel to reel copy of the recording for John Cipollina, a transfer of which also circulates, sometimes mislabeled as a soundboard. Another fun recording Rick made was of The Rolling Stones at Winterland (1978?) where he had his mike on a pole, but was so 'altered' that he wandered around the hall, often not even facing the stage: a document of the event, perhaps, but not an audio treat...

Subject: Bunch of drunks making noise.
Cipollina's crazy picking just about makes it listenable. I keep searching for a recording of him that actually sounds good, but found nothing since QMS...

Thanx Rick and EasyEd. Echoes to everything RyanLinn wrote. The sound is just as crisp as can be and the band is way UP! Enjoyed every second of this one. As soon as they mentioned the Cal Stanford game I remembered this being the year the band prematurely came onto the field for one of sport's craziest moments. If you like Rock and Roll music this band cannot be truer. Check this one out no matter what. I played Love Machine on my radio show last night. Peace

This show is a riot. The sound is perfect, and the banter between songs shows these guys at their weirdest and best. Even silly little ditties like "There Ain't No Cars On Me" and "Ronald Reagan and Tricky Dick" are worth repeated listens... I don't think I've ever been to a concert where the band laughs this much.
